Drivers at Mid-Atlantic Baking approved in January a new contract that provides a 12% wage increase over the four-year term. Other gains include an increase in the company contribution to the 401(k) plans; additional paid time off for all members under the sick leave policy updated to comply with Maryland law; and improvements to company safety policies.

Negotiations for four new contracts are underway at Anne Arundel County on behalf of fire battalion chiefs, correction program specialists, deputy sheriffs, and park rangers.

Contract talks are ongoing at KraftHeinz, for pressmen and drivers at The Baltimore Sun; Holly Poultry; YRC Freight, USF Holland New Penn; and newly-organized service agents at DHL.

In organizing news, drivers at Arnold Packaging in Baltimore and graphic artists at Hood Printing in Randallstown recently voted to join Teamsters Local 355. A first contract was quickly achieved at Hood Printing that reflects the Teamster standard for wages, benefits, and grievance procedure.
